Argentine Film Festival-Day 1

We’ve committed ourselves to watching at least one Argentine movie a week (along with a few Gael Garcia Bernal films, because he is hot) on nights we don’t go out.

(I realize now that Brigada Explosiva: Mision Pirata was also an Argentine movie, so this technically should be our second film.  But we’re just going to pretend that Brigada Explosiva never happened.)

First (real) film: El Secreto de Sus Ojos (The Secret of Their Eyes)

This movie, based off a book (La Pregunta de Sus Ojos), and directed by Juan Jose Campanella, won the Oscar for best foreign film in 2010.  It is awesome.  It’s a drama, mystery, thriller, love story…really fantastic.  Go rent it.
